8:32 am
palmyra at 24 degrees. and moorestown at 25 degrees. it's a cold morning across the delaware valley. we're waking up look at these numbers they're just -- they're not doing justice when it comes to the winds which are making it feel like it's into the teens 18 in the poconos. 20 in pottstown. there's your wind chills it feels like six right now in mount pocono if you're skiing today or going for beautiful hike with the nice, upping, snow down on the ground and the forests look beautiful if you'll going for nice hike layer up today with that breeze making these wind chills all day feel like it's into the single digits and teens. all right. we'll talk more about your forecast coming up there's a couple of events we have to talk about weather wise in just a little bit. lauren, how you feeling out there,? it's cold. >> it's freezing. i know you're making fun of me because you're inside but listen we have a serious subject to talk about because a lot of people will be hitting the roads for the holidays and even out christmas shopping in this weather. it's been very cold. rick santiago from aaa joining thus this morning. i shared my story with you i got in the car yesterday. low pressure light came on.
8:33 am
i drove all the way to franklin mills back to sent city. bad decision? >> it's not the best decision in the world but it's very common for most people to do. typically with aaa would suggest you check your tire pressure at any time that that tire light does come on i know it could be quite annoying but eighths very important matter. >> why does it pop on? what's happening? >> your tire pressure is decreasing and naturally in cold weather your tire pressure decreases a couple of psi every 10 degrees. so it's going to cause the light on and ultimately it can cause some issues while you're drivi driving. >> and one thing you want to point out it's not on the actual tire. i know a lot of people look at the tire to fine out about the pressure. it's on like the door or your car, right. >> that is correct. it's actually on your door jam. i can show you now. >> show me. >> absolutely. >> when you go over to your door jam, you open your door -- >> yes. >> sometimes it will be right here. but in this particular case it's actually going to be right on this part of the door. it will be right here for you. >> gotcha. >> that's where you shall look to find out exactly what you needic tire.
8:34 am
>> that is right. you can go to any aaa car care center. we'll adjust the tire pressure for you so you can make sure it's at the pressure. >> members and non members. >> member and non members. >> a lot of people were stranded yesterday because their batteries were sort of frozen out. talk about that. >> sure. aaa roadside assistance actually has a lot of calls coming in and over 50% of those calls are related to batteries and tires. >> oh wow. >> so one of the items that we would strongly suggest you get your battery tested primary reason for -- at 32 degrees, actually lose 35% of your battery strength. at 0 degrees you lose 60% of its strength. so it's very important that you get it tested because the average battery live is actually only three to five years. so it's very important that you get it tested. yet again that's one thing that aaa does at our care care centers for members and non members. >> you guys are great. what is this fancy device you have. >> this is the battery tester we use at our facilities we can get the proper diagnostic and ensure that the battery is good. >> okay. let's go to the side.
8:35 am
i know you set up some thing over here, because if the battery goes out or if you happen to get a flat tire maybe because the pressure, there are some things that you have to have in the car. you say for emergencies. >> absolutely. any unforeseen circumstances number one i would recommend you always have your battery charged before you leave. so that way you can call aaa roadside assistance but mostly in the back of your trunk you should have it in an area where it is -- where it is accessible for you not underneath anything. but an emergency vehicle roadside kit that has jumper cables, battery, lights, et cetera also some extra blankets and extra gear to keep you warm in unforeseen circumstance. >> i love that you have those were already frozen on mymine- windshield. >> absolutely. so you want to make sure that your war cher fluid is always filled. because in those cases it's very annoying when you can't see. you want to make sure that's filled and also want to make sure you have a good zest wipers i recommend you have an extra set in the back of your car. >> okay. people can find out the locations nearest them by going online, is that the best thing to do. >> absolutely. ask you for your zip
